Did: Did this develop soon after you started taking antibiotics? If so then there is a possibility it is an allergic reaction. On the other hand it could be a bacterial infection as well or a dermatitis. It is very difficult to say without seeing the lesion in question. In the meantime lanolin cream or a&d ointment can be used to soothe the nipples and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) can help with the itching.
Please seek care.
Best of luck. ...Read more

My girlfriends nipples are burning and itchy, but her boobs aren't growing. It's been a week since her period ended. Is she pregnant?

My girlfriends nipples are burning and itchy, but her boobs aren't growing. It's been a week since her period ended. Is she pregnant?

Maybe not, but...: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If she gets her next NORMAL regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

Doctor can evaluate: A doctor will have to get more of the story about the nipples, and do an exam (one can start with his primary care doctor). Nipple rashes can be from friction (from shirts, sports equipment like swimming in an inner tube, etc...), eczema, cancer, etc... Nipple discharges can be from hormonal imbalances, which may be due to hormone-producing glands, liver disease, medications, etc... ...Read more

Just moved/got a cat: itchy/burning lungs/throat, shortness of breath, hard to breathe at night- tightness in chest daily. No known allergies. Cause?

Cat allergy: Please get retested for cat allergy. You can do pin prick or the blood method. I suspect it will be positive when you check it. Most doctors would say remove the cat while most patients will reply remove the doctor. If you keep the cat you will need to learn avoidance measures like not sleeping with it in your room and keeping the cat litter and stuff in a separate room of the house. ...Read more
